Schwartz, Mangini clear air
The air has been cleared between Jim Schwartz and Browns coach Eric Mangini. After the Lions edged the Browns 38-37 on Sunday, Mangini accused the Lions defensemen of faking injuries to slow down play because Cleveland was going with a no-huddle offense.
Schwartz said on Monday that Mangini was way out of bounds.
The two coaches, who go back years to their beginnings in the NFL, have talked it out.
Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported today that Mangini and Schwartz had talked. We cleared the air. I like Jim. Always had a good relationship. The bottom line is we didn't do enough to win the game. Jim and I are fine, Mangini said.
